Hide the lies behind your eyes
Apologise through your disguise
Speaking love with every word
It’s a very long time, since I have heard
I believe all you say
Then you turn and walk away
Working late? I didn’t know
It’s always you that has to go
You turn away from my touch
Now we don’t kiss, very much
Lines have appeared on my face
I can no longer, wear tiny lace
Love grows deeper over time
your heart forever, will be mine
but now I laugh at my naivety
are you with someone, who is not me?
The feeling, as my stomach sickens
panicking, and my breathing quickens
Children grown, have flown the nest
I was always here, I did my best
Could I be single? Would that be right?
And still be here, alone at night
So…should I just turn a blind eye
or show some strength and say goodbye?
You will be fine, whatever I do,
You’ll carry on and look after you !
I should not let my anger out
I don’t want to have a row and shout
I must keep quiet and go to bed
Rise tomorrow with a clear head.
A letter sits, addressed to me
Tears are flowing, I cannot see
I read your words, printed black
They say you won’t be coming back
